The Summer Season

Cruisers is a “4 sports, 1 fee” club offering Speed Swimming, Diving, Water Polo and Synchronized Swimming. Athletes are able to participate in any or all of the 4 sports, and can attend an unlimited number of practices. Our summer season runs from May 1st to Mid August 2018, with a focus on stroke refinement, swim fitness, fun, social and team activities. The season includes training and participation in competitive meets and competitions for the year, including Regionals (in August Dates to be confirmed).  If you are new to swim meets, they are fun family events that build swimmers confidence and skills, not to mention great memories!

We offer two payment options by credit card:

  • A one-time payment fee for the summer season
  • Monthly payment plan up to May 31st registration

Not sure if this is for your child?  If you are new to the club or new to summer swimming we offer a $100 trial membership for the month of May. This membership provides unlimited access to all four sports. If you choose to continue for the whole summer season, the $100 applies to the cost of regular summer registration.

Fundraising Deposit

Cruisers is a non-profit organization and the fundraising deposit provides cash flow for summer operations. Throughout the season the club will hold 3 or 4 fundraising events in which you and your family can participate. Funds raised will be credited against the $100 deposit already included in your membership fee. Members raising $100 or more will get the full $100 deposit refunded at the end of the year. Otherwise, the $100 fundraising deposit remains as part of your membership costs.

A list of fundraising events along with details regarding how you can earn back your deposit will be available prior to the start of the season and can be found here
